eBay Business Policies Management APIVersion 1.1.0

CategoryGroup

Type defining the categoryGroup container, which indicates the category group to which the payment, return, or shipping business policy applies to. The only two valid category groups are 'MOTORS_VEHICLE' (for motor vehicle listings) and 'ALL' (for non-motor vehicle listings). These enumeration values are case-sensitive. The 'MOTORS_VEHICLE' category group is not valid for return business policies, as return business policies cannot be used with motor vehicle listings.

Fields

default ( boolean ) [1]
This flag indicates if the corresponding business policy defined for the assigned category group is used by default for listings in a category group that does not have a business policy assigned to it. For example, if a seller has only created a business policy for motor vehicles (categoryGroup=MOTORS_VEHICLE), and this category group is set as the default, all applicable settings/values in this business policy will also apply to non-motor vehicle categories. The 'MOTORS_VEHICLE' category group is not valid for return business policies, as return business policies cannot be used with motor vehicle listings.

If this field is not included in the call request, by default, the first (or only) category group specified in the request will get assigned as the default category group. Only one category group can be the default, so categoryGroup.default cannot be 'true' for more than one category group.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use default.

ETRS ( boolean ) [0..1]
This flag is returned as 'true' if the corresponding business policy meets all eBay Top-Rated Listing requirements for the category group. To qualify as an ETRS business policy, the seller must meet Top-Rated Seller requirements, and the business policy must include a 14-day (or longer) money back return policy and same-day or one-day handling. For more information on Top-Rated Seller and Top-Rated Plus listings, see the Becoming a Top Rated Seller and qualifying for Top Rated Plus help topic.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use ETRS.

name ( string ) [1]
This string value indicates the name of the category group to which the corresponding business policy applies. The only two valid category groups are 'MOTORS_VEHICLE' (for motor vehicle listings) and 'ALL' (for non-motor vehicle listings). These enumeration values are case-sensitive. The 'MOTORS_VEHICLE' category group is not valid for return business policies, as return business policies cannot be used with motor vehicle listings.
